  1. Idle Fantasy Doto

    I should be able to make it to the draft, hopefully. I'mma get all the ringers.
  2. Idle Fantasy Doto

    Should be able to get joined to the league tomorrow morning, spent the day downloading Dota 2 on my netbook via hotel internet. I'll be around a bit on Saturday morning, but will probably have to drop out around 11:30am Central.
  3. DOTA 2

    Currently vacationing in the US without access to Dota 2, but I'll be back the evening of the 18th and will join the fantasy league at that point. Don't give up my spot!
  4. DOTA 2

    Done and done.
  5. DOTA 2

    Picked up my compendium earlier today, and I'd be happy to play in an idle thumbs fantasy league. if there's room available, count me in.
  6. Actually I think I might be done with this. Ran out of easy ways to make gold, and I don't really care for ranked play, only the arena, and clearly I'm not good enough to maintain arena status without a bunch of daily quests. Nothing more frustrating than playing a game well, only to have an expensive card just shit all over your plans.
  7. Went over to the dark side, playing a bullshit beast hunter for ranked games now. I love my shaman, but it's so hard to put together a consistent performing deck for them.
  8. I thought with their lore and story setup they provided a novel reason for why you of all the people in the world is the one charging around and changing things. Beyond that, it felt like a bit of a mish-mash of Fable and an Elder Scrolls game. And not necessarily mashed together in the best way possible.
  9. Ran into the Pursuer last night, clearly much later than I was intended to face him. It always surprises me when you run into a boss out of sequence how easy/difficult it can feel versus when you're supposed to encounter them. Unfortunately what I thought was going to be a new path to take dead-ended shortly thereafter, and now I'm not sure where to go again. Guess it's time to go exploring in areas I haven't been to for a while!
  10. I think you lose a point of durability for each discrete thing your weapon touches on a swing. The halberds all seem to hit the ground on their overhead strike, so maybe that's what's going on? I had a similar thing happen with my halberd in the area with the hunchbacks with hook poles and dogs.
  11. This is almost always the best way to play in Arena, IMO. It's a lot easier to build decks around the idea of efficient trades at various cost-points, rather than trying to force the deck into a particular shape if the cards don't support it. Less minions on the battlefield reduces the odds your opponent can surprise you or use a card effect to get a better trade of their own.
  12. Yes, you need to wear the ring and be in one of the two areas. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to trigger. The area with the Rat King and the chamber before that don't count.
  13. Took that 10 - 2 shaman arena deck I mentioned earlier today, and took it all the way to 12 wins. My first successful arena run. Woo!
  14. I'm running heavy Str, plus moderate health/stamina/equip load. Wielding a Halberd or Long sword, with a Tower Shield, and medium-ish armour. If I ever get up to 50 Str, I'm going to try out that Gyrm axe I got as a drop for accidentally killing the merchant in No Man's Wharf.
  15. Started up an arena run last night, and actually had to quit and go to bed before I'd lost 3 times. Currently 10 - 2, eager to get back and finish it off tonight. A really great Shaman draft deck. 3 Fire Elementals, a Forked Lightning, a Lightning Storm, and a semi-situational Black Knight. Plus a host of just plain old good cards like Chillwind Yeti, and Ooze. Oh, and a Mana Tide totem. One game that sucker was up something like 9 turns, the card advantage was glorious. My best run yet.
